consider the context

“the sunset was nature’s masterpiece: swirls of apricot and amber spilling into the ocean, leaving behind nothing but wisps of cotton candy in the sky.”

“the sun sank slowly over the serene blue sea.”

which sentence do you prefer?

one is 25 words; the other is 9. both have their time and place.

100 words is not a lot. especially for a writer like me.

but i’ve learned when to flourish and when to chop.

consider the context.

but keep it human; don’t overwrite.
